Hello there! It appears you have dug a little deeper and discovered this letter at the bottom of the home page on Santa Barbara Life.

Over the years, we have built enhancements and improvements into our unique site for curious web explorers just like you. In fact, what started in 1995 with just a couple of businesses has grown into a one-of-a-kind Santa Barbara guide featuring dining, hotels, services, attractions, events and more. Our large collection of Santa Barbara video tours continue to provide something special you won’t find on any other directory in the area.

Local videos are only one part of the story. Santa Barbara radio, Facebook, search and podcasting are additional elements built into the fabric of our success. For over a decade our popular Santa Barbara contests have seen multiple monthly winners and plenty of smiles! Our news page provides a single hub from several sources offering all the best stories and current articles in our area. Santa Barbara Life mixes key local business contacts with all the fun and flavor we are known for in this little slice of coastal paradise. Did we mention our beaches? Solvang and the Santa Barbara wine country? Or the world famous Santa Barbara waterfront? How about downtown State Street and our incredible night life? The truth is that Santa Barbara is one of those rare places with just the right balance of just about everything.

Our focus continues to be on providing a rich blend of local information and entertainment choices while giving our visitors a taste of all that Santa Barbara has to offer. We’re glad you have found us and we invite you to continue exploring Santa Barbara Life - and tell your friends! We promise to keep working and doing what we do best. Having lived in and around Santa Barbara and Goleta all my life, I have come to believe this area is pretty amazing. It is with great pride that we will continue to move Santa Barbara Life in a positive direction. Make it a special day!
